lovemeifyoucanInterview with Shanice B.:

Matthew Toffolo: What is the general theme and tone of your novels?

Shanice B.: My theme is based upon relationships between a man and a woman. It also helps to encourage women that they don’t have to accept just anything from a man.

MT: Why should people buy your novels?

SB: Even though my novel is fiction, it’s still based on reality. It’s based on relationships in general. What should a woman/man do when a woman/man cheats on each other? Should he/she stay or should he/she leave? Should she/he listen to their heart or listen to their friends? My novels are based on the emotions that everyone have felt in their life. I believe almost every woman and man can relate to my books.
